Do it with passion or not at all...

Sucellus himself would lower his hammer to enjoy a swift one of ours given the chance.

Kicking off in November 2015 it's hard to believe how busy it's gotten so quickly. From one batch spread out around Nelson to many different fantastic tap houses throughout Aotearoa that embrace the same passion we feel toward great tasting brews.

If you don't manage to get out much and prefer a night in over a few, we have heard your call ! Our ranges are appearing on more shelves within more outlets nationwide daily, check out the list at the bottom of the page for stockists

We love our brews, we love giving you the chance to enjoy them and will continue to create new and exciting stuff as we grow. Come on the journey with us and enjoy every drop

HorseBox - Get Amongst It !
HORSE BOX BEERS
BLACK STALLION
MILK STOUT 5% ABV

This is rich, creamy and has intense chocolate/toffee tones, a great milk stout with a donkey kick of carbonation to give it extra life

STORM HOPPER
APA 5.7% ABV

This American Pale Ale uses a great mix of Columbus & Cascade hops with a little homegrown varieties to balance it out. It is an excellently balanced hoppy ale and is always in high demand

RONIN
PILSNER 4.5% ABV
BGNZ - BRONZE MEDAL WINNER
AIBA - BRONZE MEDAL WINNER

An elegantly woven mix of Riwaka & Motueka hops at various stages offer a delightfully crisp New Zealand Pilsner. A very subtle hint of fruity Nelson Sauvin hops elevates this brew above the rest in our view.

FORKHILL
RED IPA 6% ABV

Amarillo & Cascade hops dance together in this brew complimenting the robust malt base. Ale malt, Munich, Shepard's Delight, Aurora, Red back, Toffee & a pinch of Roasted Barley offer a deep red that sings with life on your palate

VIGILANTE
NZ IPA 5.8% ABV

A lasting bitterness with distinct NZ mid palate blast from South Cross & Pacific Jade hops hitting hard but still allows the malts to shine. Late additions, whirpool & dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin & Taikeke hops offer a distinctly unique New Zealand flavour

JUGGERNAUT
IPA 5.7% ABV

With a residual malt sweetness like candy cane and a nutty citrus flavour from American Amarillo & Simcoe Hops, this brew is a bit of an unstoppable force.

LAYER CAKE
CHOCOLATE ORANGE BALTIC PORTER 8.3% ABV

Special release : Co-Lab Series : CONCEPT BREWING

With this Baltic Porter we wanted to create something a little different. Layer Cake is layered with subtle multiple flavours, you get all the smooth complex malt sweetness and roasted tones of a Baltic porter with a twist. This Chocolate Baltic has Organic Cocoa nibs added during fermentation giving it an additional velvety sweet layer. The Ruby red grapefruit coupled with the distinctive Mandarina Bavaria hops offers the unique icing on this cake and lends itself to a beautiful orange colour profile not normally found in a Porter. We've all seen white stouts, now its time to experience an 'Orange' Baltic Porter ! Layer Cake - You're not getting out, you're only getting in

RESINOUS HOPPY FILTH
DOUBLE IPA 9.8% ABV

Special release : Co-Lab Series : CONCEPT BREWING

We are pretty excited about 'The Filth' This is a 9.8% Double IPA, we recommend a small glass To make the most of this brew its best to get your first sip and wrap it round your molars before swallowing Initially the strong bitterness will awaken every taste bud you have and coat your palate in a bit of a resinous explosion. Once established as you continue the taste, the hop flavours begin to shine quite potently in different ways offering new levels of flavour with each sip. The experience is one of an evolving journey from beginning to end. It truly is Resinous, it truly is Hoppy & a little bit of awesome all encompassing filth ! You're welcome

POW POW
WHITE NZ IPA

Special release Co-Lab Series : CONCEPT BREWING

Smiths - Craft Beer House NZIPA Challenge kicks off this weekend in Queenstown POW POW - BELGIAN FARMHOUSE - WHITE NZ IPA This one is a little bit special and rare We decided to co-laberate with Concept Brewing for this year on our brew. Keen to be a little more adventurous we thought it was a good idea to brew a White IPA using Wallonian Farmhouse yeast, one of the funkier clean Belgian strains. We even put in a box of Honey Puffs cereal & Porridge Oats into the mash, which we think may be a first and possibly qualifies it as good for a breakfast substitute too ! The end result is a White IPA with clove & lemony profiles perfect for Queenstown Winter Festival weekend Get amongst it !

Because you gotta shred the Pow when its on the hill - Pow days are the best days ! "Pow Pow" NZIPA

RYE'NGETSTHEGUMBOOT
RYE PILSNER 5% ABV

Special release : Co-Lab Series : CONCEPT BREWING

With nice delicate weaving and late additions of Motueka, Riwaka & Pacifica hops we balanced out the Rye kick which titivates the palate. Whirlpooling at a lower temperature of 80°C with more hops allowed us to induce a nicer nose and fruity flavour we think everyone will go back for

PERFECT STORM
US IPA

Special release : Co-Lab Series : SMITHS CRAFT BEER HOUSE

Good food, good times and good brews make for a perfect storm of elements to create something special among friends. We got together with the crew at Smiths Craft Beer House in Queenstown and designed a beer to celebrate our anniversary
